Re: Adding 30 GB HFS Partition To Ubuntu Drive

The site called the Wine HQ can give you the details of the set-up that you wanted for the system that you are using in for the Ubuntu that has been installed in it. And there are lot ways through which you can make the use of the HFS Partition for the system that you are using. Also if you?re trying to install the HFS partition it will depend on the system that you are making the use of. And basically the partition is basically for the running of the itunes and it will run well under the Wine that I have just given you the solution.

And also you can also try out the .DMG files that are present in the system in the form of the disk image and is called as the disk image files. Also you can mount those image files that are present in the Linux operating system that you are using. And also the fact is that if you are making the use of the Ubuntu which is the type of the Linux operating system it will work properly and the desired partition can also be made in it accordingly and also the requirement will be fulfilled for the partition that is required for you r playing of the itunes.

Re: Adding 30 GB HFS Partition To Ubuntu Drive

you can try and just run the code that is given to you below:
Code:
sudo mount -t hfs -o loop myImage.dmg or you can also run it on macdisk.
This code is to make to run on the root folder, so that it can directly be used for the installation that is required by you for the itunes. This will definitely create a partition and allow using that 30 GB HFS that you have just made for the using of the itunes in the system that you are currently using.

Always keep in mind that if your trying to make the partition see that partition you have just made is for the use of the specific work that you want to do. And do not try to format the HFS drive which you have just crated because it of no use and if you?re planning to run the itunes then you got to make the use of the ntfs and the files that are available in the .DMG and also it can be made to use anywhere you want.
